Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Bill Monroe - Uncle Pen
Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys are fiddlin' at the Grand Ole Opry show on Agust 6, 1965. They do "Uncle Pen", one of my all-time Bill Monroe favorites. The fiddler (I don't know who's the guy) does a good job and Monroe's mandolin solo is awesome. They speeded it up just a little bit, but I think that what Bluegrass is all about. Enjoy!
